Deadline: 30 June 2016
Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation Fund is currently accepting applications for funding of small, targeted grants to local and grassroots projects based on individual Species Conservation initiatives, recognize leaders in the field and elevate the importance of species in the broader conservation debate.
Its focus is global and eligibility for grants will extend to all plant, animal and fungi species conservation efforts, without discrimination on the basis of region or selected species.
Generally the Fund would prefer to support projects which focus on a single species, but it also recognizes that in some geographic and taxonomic circumstances it makes more sense to group a number of species.
The Fund maximum grant size is $25,000, and any application asking for more than this from the Fund will be rejected. The total budget of a project can be higher if there are other sources of funding.
Anyone directly involved in species conservation throughout the world can apply to the Fund for a grant.
